    Default New Orleans vs Minnesota Meal

    I guess New Orleans is playing the Vikings in the playoffs. Minnesota
    is where the Mississippi begins, and New Orleans is where it ends. I
    have no trouble figuring out what type of food would represent New
    Orleans, but what would represent Minnesota? So far I have come up
    with Mississippi Mud pie, and Spam on white bread. Any suggestions
    without looking at the Pillsbury web site?

    Is that seriously all you can come up with for New Orleans? A city with one
    of the richest food traditions in the country?

    Hotdish. What the rest of us call casseroles; Minnesotans are (in)famous
    for them. Whether tater tot hotdish (recipe follows) or some other
    casserole, its the dish you want to represent Minnesota - and, most are
    easy to prepare. If tater tots aren't appealing, see The Generic Casserole
    Recipe, at:
    http://preview.tinyurl.com/genericcasserole

    Tater Tot Hotdish
    6 Servings

    1 pound lean ground beef
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 10 oz. package frozen corn, (or you can substitute canned)
    1 12 oz. jar beef gravy
    1 16 ounce package frozen tater tots

    Brown the ground beef and onion in a large skillet; drain off any grease.
    Add the corn and gravy and mix well. Pour into a 2 quart shallow casserole
    dish. Arrange the tater tots evenly on top. Bake in a preheated 350 oven
    for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the tater tots are crisp.

    It wasn't until I read this that I realized the first instruction in ANY
    hotdish/casserole recipe is "Brown the ground beef"!

    A couple of years ago, Alton Brown and his Good Eats peeps did a 'Feasting
    On.....' trip from the toe of the Mississippi all the way up to the
    headwaters. See if you can find the itinerary and the accompanying recipes.
    He has a couple of goodies from Minney-soda.

    Well, having 95% of my family in Minnesota, I feel I can be of help
    here.

    Do *not* make Lutefisk.

    Do however, consider regular, non-jello fish - salmon or whitefish in
    particular. Cheese is also popular, being next to Wisconsin.

    For an ethnic twist, consider Scandinavian dishes - Swedish Meatballs
    would make a good party food. Pickled herring would too, but it may be
    a more acquired taste. Potato sausage is great with mustard - see if a
    local butcher has any.

    For dessert, bar cookies are huge in MN - just called "bars".

    And yes, hotdish is big. Sad but true. Actually some can be very good
    though, so don't disregard it totally.

    Hope this helps start your muse in motion,
    Kris

    Umm....as a born and raised Minnesotan, I have to take issue your recipe a
    little bit. I've never, ever heard of using canned gravy as a binder in
    *any* hotdish, least of all tater tot hotdish. Hotdishes use cream of
    whatever soup, cream of mushroom being the most common. Then again, IMHO
    while all hotdishes are technically casseroles, not all casseroles are
    hotdishes (cream soup being the subtle difference). I've also never eaten
    tater tot hotdish made exclusively with corn--not growing up, not at any
    potluck, nor at any church basement funeral luncheon. I think the most
    common veggie additive is a can of Veg-All or a similar frozen mixed veggie
    (carrots, lima beans, green beans, potatoes, corn, peas, etc.). That being
    said, I am open minded enough to try your version some time.

    I had to google it because I love Alton Brown and don't remember that

    I think this was copied from the STrib a couple of years ago:

    American Legion Funeral Hot Dish
    (Colette Flynn, owner of Catered by Colette in St. Louis Park, MN)

    5 lbs. ground beef
    1 large onion, chopped
    1 (16-oz.) bag frozen sliced carrots
    1 (16-oz.) bag frozen cauliflower florets
    1 (16-oz.) bag frozen chopped broccoli
    1 (50-oz.) can of cream of mushroom soup
    1 (50-oz.) can cream of chicken soup
    1 bunch celery, chopped
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    1 tsp. white pepper
    3 (12-oz.) bags chow mein noodles

    Fry hamburger and chopped onion in a large cast-iron pan, breaking it up
    into small pieces with a potato masher. Place in a large roaster. Mix
    frozen vegetables, soups, chopped celery, soy sauce, and pepper in a
    bowl. Pour into roaster and blend with meat. Fold in two bags of chow
    mein noodles, cover, and bake at 325 degrees for 75 minutes. Remove from
    oven. Sprinkle remaining bag of chow mein noodles on top. Put cover back
    on and bake another 15 minutes. Serves 50.

    Have you ever made that? Eaten it? Sounds gross with the beef gravy
    and corn. Is it better than it sounds?

    Jinx, I salute you! Beef gravy is not involved in hotdish. And I'm
    glad you pointed out that hotdish is a subset of a baked casserole. I
    didn't feel like getting into it on a.b.f.
